Two days after the horrific Taliban attack on a military-run school in Peshawar killed more than hundred and thirty students, a controversial, Islamabad-based cleric Abdul Aziz refused to condemn the massacre, sparking rare protests against radicalism in the country.
What followed was a rare and Bold protest staged by the pakistanis that spread as fire in the form of both online and offline protests across the country.
This man Jibran Nasir started the the protest that has caught on like wild fire.
We are willing to risk it all coz we have nothing left to lose. We'll stand face to face with whatever threat. Join us Pak #ArrestAbdulAziz

Unfortunately, my heart wrenches with fear of a possible bomb going off or a spray of bullets on these brave souls who stand to fight against these epitomes of barbarism and depraved mindsets, armed with nothing more than candles and posters.
May God be with them in their fight towards truth and justice ! Best wishes from India!
